Was driving by a country club area and one of the gated enclaves was named Dancing Bears.

Not here. Today, at my kid's guitar lesson:

Kid: (looking at the bass) The guy in the Grateful Dead invented a six string bass.

Guitar teacher: Who?

Kid: The Grateful Dead.

Guitar teacher: I haven't heard of them.

(Sigh. And he has long hair, too. And plays bass.)

Althea, was there another post from you that got deleted, on the Furthur thread, or did I dream that.

Ring, still in reverie? (I envy you.)


I need a rec. from you (or a few). What would you choose as a JGB to send out to a very diverse audience, but kinda hip (even thought this may be their first Jerry). It has to be on on a single song vid and under 6-7 minutes. Quality playing, audio, vid (still's are fine) all count. I guess I'm asking for the moon, or part of it. Thanks!

And out comes .....

Under 6-7 minutes is tough. This is about 9 minutes and I would think just about everyone would like this - it seems in a realm apart from whether one is "hip" or not - Midnight Moonlight from 1976:

Catfish John 1978 also roughly 9 minutes:

Here's a FotD that clocks in at 8:46 and is extremely beautiful:

Sisters and Brothers is a shorter one - this one from '76 is only about 7 minutes. I don't consider this song very "representative" of Jerry, but if you've got to have something shorter:

This Gomorrah is lovely and is actually under 7 minutes. (Again, though, I personally don't think of this song as ideally reflective of JGB.)

The time limit is the problem. I kept looking for songs that I vaguely thought of as "short" and they would turn out to be 14 minutes long.

Tiger Rose is short, and a personal favorite - source of my handle "Ringolevio" - but of course, it's not Jerry singing.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Deadheads are eveywhere Game of Thrones

Somebody might have mentioned this on this board before, but Game of Thrones has some few GD names thrown around in it - George RR Martin must be a bit of a fan.

There are "dire wolves" running around the "weirwood" - both terms that admittedly pre-date the Dead - but there is also a piece of real estate called the "Mountains of the Moon."

I'm just finishing book one - there may be more later.

I live right next to Ripple Avenue, but since Shell, Ocean View, and the like are nearby, I doubt it was in reference to Hunter-Garcia.
